I agree that watching the dvd would certainly change one's perception of how interactive the band was that day.

But visually is only one way to digest a show. X factor - to me {again imho} just was not one to make this show the most downloaded show of all time (pretty close, at least).

I guess I was just perplexed that a show (and you are correct with the "Truckin' up to Buffalo" release) that was "good" would be gobbled up by so many.

Not sure who, but someone posted that he/she lived nearby and that the scene was killer in the 'woods'.

I can tell you that I was not on the floor. This was one of the few "big arena" shows I saw. And I had seen the boys up close several times in the early and mid 80's. Did not want to deal with 80k behind me.

To each their own. And I respect that absolutely.

Thanks for the feedback (pun intended!!)
